Youll learn all of the most common injuries and illnesses: how to recognize them, how to manage them, and, often, how to prevent them.

Synopsis:

Knack First Aid covers the most common injuries and illnesses, how to recognize them, how to manage them and, when appropriate, how to prevent them. By Buck Tilton, a trusted first responder and first aid expert who is the author of many FalconGuides and two Knack books, it also covers CPR and other emergencies that require immediate action if a life is to be saved. In addition, emergencies that are not always considered common, such as ones involving mental health, are discussed. Extensive, step-by-step photography takes the reader further than any such previous first aid guide.
